Supposedly you are not able to remove them until they expire – which can take as long as ten years. However, the way the credit reporting system works and the FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act) works is that everything that is on a credit report including tax liens has to be verifiable if you request that it be verified. Therefore, if you require that the tax lien be verified and they cannot verify it belongs to you, then they must remove it.


What you should do is to force the credit bureaus to provide proof that the tax lien actually belongs to you, not just check a computer and see if the name matches or the address matches. No, they must show you proof it’s yours. If they can’t do that, they have to remove it. The key is knowing how to force the credit bureau to provide that proof. There are certain sections of the FCRA you must mention to force the credit bureaus to either provide proof or remove the item.



These sections vary depending on the negative item they assess. However, it works very efficiently if you know what you are doing.
